If you’re reading this, I assume that you’re either a) an owner of an account on the awesome platform Aweber or b) someone who’s interested in becoming an owner of an account on Aweber. (If you’re not sure which one, read this:
The Darker Side of Aweber
If you’re thinking about becoming an owner of an account on Aweber, then congratulations! You’re in the right place. 🙂
But, before we continue, it’s important to remember one thing: you’re about to enter a world of mystery. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. It’s just that, when it comes to Aweber, there are a lot of questions that haven’t been answered. So, I’m going to answer as many of them as I can. But, before I begin, I need to tell you about something: Aweber’s Terms of Service. (If you’re not familiar with Aweber, it’s a popular email marketing platform used by millions of people worldwide.)
The first thing you’re going to notice when you log in is that, instead of using your email address to log in, you’re going to be using your phone number. As a result, you’ll be prompted to verify the account using Authy (a two-step verification system).
While this may sound like a pain-free process, don’t be fooled; it’s not. Entering your phone number every week when you don’t need to is definitely a hassle.
Another thing you’ll notice is that Aweber is a little darker when compared to other platforms. For example, on MailChimp, the inbox and the confirmation emails look the same. So, when you confirm an email on MailChimp, you know that it didn’t end up in your spam folder. On Aweber, however, the confirmation emails look slightly different from the inbox, which makes it easier for a spam algorithm to catch on.
The Best Ways to Save Your Aweber Template
With that out of the way, it’s time to dive into how you can save your Aweber template. I’m going to walk you through the best ways to do so. And to start, let’s examine the two most popular methods: manual backups and using a third-party tool.
When it comes to backing up your Aweber template, the most convenient and the most reliable way is to do it manually. This way, you can ensure that the backup itself is always up-to-date, regardless of whether you make any changes to your template or the platform itself. (Unless you’re using the manual backup feature, which we’ll get to in a bit.)
To manually back up your Aweber template, follow these steps:
Step one: Navigate to your Aweber dashboard.
The first step is to navigate to your Aweber dashboard. This is the place where you manage all of your settings and information for your account. So, if you go here frequently, you’ll notice that your dashboard is something familiar.
Step two: Click on the three dots in the top-right corner of the page and select the Settings option.
Now, we’re going to click on the Settings option in the top-right corner of the dashboard. This will bring up a sub-menu with all of the settings for your account. When you click on the Settings option, all of your account’s settings will be displayed in a menu.
Step three: Next, click on the Backup button to download a backup zip file of your entire account.
When you click on the Backup option in the Settings menu, you’ll see a drop-down menu with all the different options available to you. One of those options is the Manual Backup. So, to do a manual backup, simply click on the Manual Backup option in the drop-down menu.
Step four: Browse to the backup folder you just created and you’ll see all of the backups for your account. (You can also check the source code of your site to see if there are any manual backups stored there. If so, you can download them as well.)
One of the great things about manual backups is that they’re easy to update. So, if you go back to step three and click on the Update button next to the Manual Backup option, you’ll see that a new version of the backup is available for you to download.
If you’re looking for an easier way to back up your Aweber template, then you might want to consider using a third-party tool. These are automated tools that will sync your templates and settings on a regular basis, saving you the time and effort of manually backing up your account.
To try out a third-party tool for backing up your Aweber template, click on the Settings option in the top-right corner of the dashboard. This will bring up a sub-menu with all the settings for your account. When you click on the Settings option, all of your account’s settings will be displayed in a menu.
Step two: Next, click on the Connected Apps button.
If you go back a second time to the Settings menu and click on the Connected Apps button, you’ll see a list of all the different apps that are connected to your account. When you click on the Connected Apps button, you’ll be taken to a page that lists all the apps associated with your account. Now, we’re going to click on the Backup button in the top-right corner of the page to download a backup zip file of your entire account.
This is the place where you can find all of the connected apps associated with your account. When you go to this page, you’ll see a list of all the connected apps, along with a Backup button to download a backup zip file. Now, if you click on the Backup button, you’ll see a window pop up that allows you to choose which connected app you’d like to use to back up your account. Select the one you want, click on the Connect button and you’re all set!
From that point on, all of your templates and settings for the selected app will be automatically and constantly backed up to the Cloud. So, even if you delete something from one of the apps, it will still be available in another.
When it comes to choosing a third-party tool to back up your Aweber template, it really depends on what you’re looking for. Some of the main things to consider are how often you want the tool to sync your templates and settings, how many connections you want the tool to have to other apps and whether you want to use an app that’s already on your phone or need to download and set up a new one.

The Best Ways to Manage Your Aweber Template
Now that you have your template backed up, it’s time to move on to the next step: putting it to use! While it’s always nice to have a backup, it’s often times better to have a working copy that you can use immediately. To do this, you need to login to your Aweber dashboard and then navigate to the Tools option in the top-right corner. Once you’re here, you can access all of the different apps that are connected to your account. To use one of these apps, simply click on the corresponding button in the top-right corner.
Back to our example: if you go to the App Store on your phone and search for MailChimp, you’ll see a listing for Aweber. To use the app, you simply click on the Install button to download and set up the app.
Once the app is installed, you’ll see a welcome screen with a list of the different features available in the app. To create a campaign in MailChimp, simply click on the Campaigns button to the right of the list.
From there, you can add a headline, a description, choose a template and, optionally, connect a URL or image to the email. Once you’ve entered all of the required information, you can click on Send to send the email blast out to your subscribers.
